Today, my schedule kicks into high gear. Today is the start of basketball practice for the son. Three practices a week and at least 16 games. For the next four months, we're in overdrive.
I've also taken on a couple of ministries at church, am writing a novel, have a book releasing Nov. 1st and another one Dec. 1st, am homeschooling the boy, approaching the end of year bookkeeping season, and judging in a writing contest.
While I'm eager and excited about many of these things, I'm also feeling the need to get some sort of strategy, some sort of system to make it all manageable. I need to break it down into bite-sized chunks that won't choke me.
I'm blessed to be able to work on my writing/blogging/networking while my son is at practice. There are several hours blocked out every week to work on word count and meet writing goals. Yay!
I'm still working on how everything else will shake out, but I think I'm ready to embrace some busyness.
How about you? Is your schedule ramping up? Are you devising ways to make it all fit without burning out?
